My father used to sell tires wholesale, now I feel like an idiot.

Want extra quite, extra soft ride for year-round driving in the city.

Have Eagle GAs (205 60R 15) on 93 Nissan Altima. Very grippy when new. Average sound, softness.

Opinions on:
Bridegstone Turanza Revo
Michelin MXV4, MXV4 Energy
Michelin X-One
Continental CH95
Other suggestions?

If you want a soft,quiet ride, I would definitely go with the Michelin X-One. If you want a little more performance, go with the Turanzo Revo. Although, I have not tried them, from what I read, they are both excellent tires. I considered both for my Volvo. I have had the Michelin MXV4 and Conti 95 on my vehicles. Would not recommend the MXV4--stiff ride, expensive, and not good in the wet. The Conti is a pretty good tire for the money, but I think the Turanzo Revo and X-One will give you a better ride.

I have same idea as ed's. If you driving normally, X-one(T rated) is good. But I would go for the Turanza Revo(H rated), it will give you more performance benifit.

I'm in Toronto & just put yoko's AVS S4 on my Altima. The tires perform well except for snow. I feel the snow traction is even worse than the GA due to the V speed rating, but regan control easily(better handling). I also put Nokia Hakka 1 snow tire on my sister's Maxima. What a difference... I would say if you are seriously consider all season tires for snow, better not getting the V rating ones and I'll go for Turanza Revo as you mentioned. But snow tires are still the way to go for winter.
